Book About Air-Filtering Plants: How to Grow Fresh Air

50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office

Yesterday, I wrote about the best air-filtering house plants and TreeHugger reader Tim pointed out in the comments that B. C. Wolverton, the first author of the NASA study on air-filtering plants, had written a book about it.The title is: How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office, and it is very well reviewed on Amazon (out of 40 reviews, 35 gave it five stars).

I've just added it to my list of books to borrow from the library, but I couldn't wait to have read it to mention the book because yesterday's post generated quite a bit of interest. I figured, why make them wait?

You can see the table of content and read an excerpt over at Amazon. Unfortunately, the excerpt is short and doesn't really show the photos that reviewers talk about. Still, it looks like a great book.
